Can a cheeky wizard help you conjure up a hat full of coins? That’s what you’ll be hoping for as he consults The Book. This magic-themed slot has 5 reels and 10 paylines and is powered by Stake Logic and comes with a bonus feature that awards up to 270 free spins complete with special transforming wilds. Wave your magic wand from between 10p and £50 per spin.
A magical library forms the backdrop to the reels in The Book – joining the lower playing cards are a mouse, a bat and a lion as well as the bearded sorcerer. He is the game’s most lucrative standard symbol, awarding 250, 1,000 or 5,000 coins if you manage to land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.
The Book comes with 2 main bonus features – on any spin, you can be awarded the Magical Wild Book feature. A book of spells appears at the bottom of the reels – the pages will turn to reveal 1 of the lower value A to 10 playing cards. Wherever this symbol appears on the spin that follows, it will transform into a wild. A payout is made with the new wilds in position.
The other symbol to keep a special eye on is the selection of books – these appear on the middle 3 reels only and offer a variety of free spins bonuses depending on how many book symbols land on each row. This is known as the Clumped x3 Free Spins Bonus feature.
The minimum award is 5 free spins if you manage to land 1 set of books anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4. If you’re lucky enough to land 3 book symbols on all 3 of the central reels, a massive 135 free spins are awarded! There are multiple possible free spin combinations on offer in between the minimum 5 and maximum 135 free spins.
The Magical Wild Book feature is also in play during the free spins to further boost your winning chances. You can re-trigger more free spins too so hope to see those magic books hit on the 3 central reels.
The Book is a jolly affair – the cartoon visuals are nicely done and the backing track matches the fantastical theme. The range of features on offer isn’t especially varied but does offer some decent winning potential. The Magical Transforming wilds certainly help things along.
Combine them with a large allocation of free spins and some excellent rewards are possible. Get lucky with The Book and this cheeky wizard can transform base metal into gold as there are wins of up to 2,802 times your stake! If you like the wizard theme, WMS’ Wizard of Oz Ruby Slippers is highly recommended.
